Sweet and Salty. It's just how I roll.

Today was quite a busy day for my heart.

Then when I got home...this made me cry.

Love the boots and the cap and gown has to be a great parent moment. Maybe I will have that moment in a few years--if I don't have a stroke first...)

Gayle said...

We have those boots! HA! And I am definitely not ready to see that cap (next year).

Steven Anthony said...

Titanium said...

The boots are precious! The cap and gown are... scary.

*covers eyes*

I can't look. I just can't.

Ohgod...

Love the boots - lose the cap & gown. I'm so NOT ready for that... I have trouble seeing my 10 year old going through puberty!

Oh man, here's some kleenex. Give me one, will ya?

If you gotta wear rainboots - they might as well be ones that make you smile!

Cap & Gown?? Yeah, you brought tears to my eyes 'cause I know I'll be seeing them in about 2 (very) short years.....

signs of life moving...ever so quickly.

Sue said...

Yes, the passage of time. They grow so very fast! That's why it's important we enjoy the time we have with our kids. Or at least the good times we have with our kids, not so much the times we want to kill them!
Take care, Sue

Anna See said...

Michele said...

That was laugh and cry with joy, right?

Ace said...

Don't use all the tissue. I will be seeing all the trimmings of graduation around here in the next few weeks and it will be my baby. Whaaaaaa!

Sue said...

Tough day!

Maybe she should wear the cap and gown with the boots?

SkylersDad said...

I have a different feeling when I think of cap and gown.

DG at Diary of a Mad Bathroom said...

Girl, I have GOT to have a pair of those boots.

And I can see why you would tear up at the second pic.

Mrs. E said...

Those boots would fit right in at Trailer High! And Sassy is graduating?! Life goes faster than you think!

Ann's Rants said...

Snappy Di said...

I tell ya. There are some really fun boots in the stores this year. I would soooo wear those pink kitty face boots if they came in my size and I'm not even a cat person.

Thought of you today when one of my real kiddos said, Mom, I am so dishausted. -Smiled a little smile.

Far Side of Fifty said...

The Empress said...

Waaaa!

I can't even see the keys to type now...

mo.stoneskin said...

Your feet are far smaller than I imagined, and your dress far more colourful. But on the whole, I'm not surprised.

Cheryl said...

Love those boots. Caps and gowns always make me tear up.

♥ Braja said...

Life's a beach.

Melissa B. said...

Do the cute kitty Wellies belong to the grad? If so, they'll go well with the cap & gown, don'tcha think? Hang in there, chica. Times like these are just what martinis are for!

Frau said...

Ah!! Here's a tissue and some Vodka drink up!

Maureen@IslandRoar said...

Oh, I know how you feel; I wanted to cry just seeing that too, and mine graduated one and 4 years ago. And it's still 2 more years till the last.
Love those boots. Both ends of the parenting heart being wrenched, so to speak.

ReadingRosie said...

I promise, you will get through the graduation thing! When my youngest graduates, I am going to strip naked and dance through the house :)

Stefanie said...

The site of that cap and gown made my stomach drop. Oh dear. These teens work us. They drive us crazy and the thought of them leaving is enough to send us over the edge.

Just Me said...

Life is full of these bittersweet moments. I know that you are so proud though. I still have 16 more years to prepare for that moment since I've just started my family but I know I'm going to be a blubbering mess that will try my best not to embarrass my daughter.

Dawn said...

LOVE the boots!

I'm not ready for Preschool graduation, much less the REAL thing! :(

Dr Zibbs said...

Cute boots.

Pollyanna said...

I've got Kindergarten graduation coming up. Yowza! How did my baby get so big? Just thinking about twelve years from now is making me tear up - what am I going to do then?

Elaine said...

Wait til it's Golden Boy!! My "baby" is turning 21 next week, a need a whole box of *$&# tissues!

CSY said...

UGH! The cap and gown is a reason to cry! I'm sending you somethings that I hope make you smile!

MollyinMinn said...

Oh yeah, that would have gotten me, too.

Awake In Rochester said...

Ah, they grow up so quickly. At lest that's what I've heard. ;)

Lisa said...

It can be the littlest things that get to us.

Not The Rockefellers said...

sunrise, sunset...

Peace~ Rene

madtexter ☺☺☺☺☺☺ (corey james) said...

Awwww... so sweet. But she'll be okay.

The Good Cook said...

Why does it seem like just yesterday my own daughter wore boots like that and now, come May, she too will be wearing that cap and gown. Oh, geez pass the tissues AND the vodka.

CatLadyLarew said...
